Can he travel back home from Zurich airport ?

Kindly help ?

I'm a little confused with you saying Luxembourg, Germany. Luxembourg is an independent country in it's own right and is not a part of Germany. Switzerland is part of the schengen area though so he can travel through there and leave from Zurich airport. He should keep his passport with visa on him though and have preferably mentioned his itinerary to include Switzerland when booking the visa. Also he should make sure to have his return flight to India from Zurich booked in advance just to limit any potential hassle. Once he has been cleared to enter the schengen area though then it shouldn't be an issue to move across the borders. Contact the Swiss embassy if you're concerned just to double check.
